Big Brother Season 16, Episode 27 Recap

Well...Zach is gone and Nicole is back. Tonight we’ll see the ramifications of that switch out, the HOH competition, lots of filler, and nominations. With Battle of the Block over, this will be a return to the Sunday format of previous seasons. While I’m thankful that the awful dual HOH’s is finished, at this point in the season it’s going to be harder and harder to sustain my interest.

We start off tonight’s broadcast with a flashback to Thursday’s comp that brought Nicole back to the game. Jocasta hugs her, and Nicole yells in the diary room how excited she is to return. Hayden hugs her and whispers that she needs to go after Derrick and Cody. Oh, how I wish that could happen. Derrick says she is not his “number one choice to come back in the house”, and Frankie talks about how phony they acted about her coming back. “We can’t wait to get her and Donny out of the house.”

She hugs Donny, who is ecstatic. “She’s a good friend of mine. She’s someone I can work with, and she also is a very smart person. Maybe the other side will see her as a bigger threat than me, and go after her again.” Jocasta hugs her again, and tells her to stick with Donny. “I want you to win. I want you to win, baby. You hear me? I’m going to pray for you every night.” Will she speak in tongues again? Wait, she kisses her on the lips! Oh, you naughty devil, Jocasta!

Back inside, Christine is not happy. How unusual. Caleb is upset at the audacity that there are now two people who will work together. “It makes me mad”, replies Christine. Um, there are six of you. Shut up! Of course, Christine has reason to be mad, as she is the reason that Nicole was evicted.

Frankie, Cody, and Caleb are now in the fire room, and Cody is also paranoid that Donny is actually going to get some help. “He’s got somebody he can walk and whisper with.” Just idiocy, Cody. Derrick comes in the room, and gives Cody and Christine a pep talk. “We have to stay united. There’s a chance she can win HOH, but that’s a worse case scenario. That being said, she is going to try to wedge herself back in.”

Sitting at the table, Donny fills in Nicole about how Christine threw the last Battle of the Block, and how she handed a bone to the other team. He also tells her about the skittles fiasco. He’s happy to have a friend again, as “every one of them is against me”. Victoria is listening to all of this, and as she walks away Donny makes a crack about how “she doesn’t know she is here. She has no clue.”  Nicole remarks that Victoria is just going to report everything he just said, but Donny replies that it doesn’t matter.

The boys are stil in the fire room, and they’re now paranoid about Christine. “If anybody is going to start blabber, it’s probably going to be Christine”, says Derrick. Victoria then walks in and fills them in on what she heard. Derrick tells her that nobody has anything to be worried about, and Cody complains in the diary room how Donny has been trying to get them to turn on each other. The audacity of that man! We see a flashback to his conversation with Cody from earlier in the week, and Cody then running to Christine with the info. Derrick is pissed about that. “I’m not going to watch him destroy my game.”

Nicole then fills in Donny on how Derrick and Cody are her targets. Caleb then walks into the room to check on soem food he’s cooking. After he leaves, she reminds him that they have to win HOH. “Game on.”

Caleb returns and reports on the nothingness he witnessed. Derrick then instructs them to never talk to them alone. “We stick together, we win HOH, we put them up together, and we’re back to where we were.” He goes on to say how if they win HOH this will be an easy week for them...and the audience sighs because this means a boring week.

We head to commercials, and when we return it’s time for filler. Old filler. Frankie is preparing fish, and Caleb does some Steven Segall moves. Come on. This is dumb, especially with the added sound effects.

The silly music then comes on, which means it’s HOH competition time. it’s a boxing themed comp, complete with phony Rocky music. Even worse, Frankie is the host so he turns up his idiocy that much more. The comp works with past house events, and they must figure out which day each event happened, using a combo of five and seven point “punches”. If they’re wrong, they have to start over.

We get the usual “I have to win this” diary room comments, and the first round then begins. Oh yeah, and Christine gets the honor or repeating the rules we just heard from Frankie. Why do they do this? Everybody has trouble with the first question, especially Victoria (surprise, surprise). Christine gets the correct number the quickest, and it’s finally down to Victoria and Nicole. Somehow Victoria gets it right, and Nicole is out. She’s obviously embarrassed to lose to Victoria.

The second round is about Joey’s alter ego, and is then lost by Victoria, who makes an obvious joke about how nobody even remembers Joey. Next up is Brittany’s soccer event, and it’s between Caleb and Christine. Caleb gets it right, and Christine is mad again.

Round four involves Pow Pow, and Donny is first, followed by Cody. Derrick is next, which means Caleb is out. It’s now between Donny, Derrick, and Cody. Devin’s nomination is the next question, and Donny is the first to get it right, followed by Cody. Derrick is now out.

It’s now down to Caleb versus Donny. After we sit through commercials, and the entire cast talking about how important this comp is once again, he question for the finale involves Amber winning Battle of the Block. Cody and Donny both get it wrong initially, and have to keep returning. Finally, Cody hits the buzzer just before Donny, and the Detonators go nuts. Derrick loves this, because that blood they’re all so scared about will belong to Cody instead of him. Nicole and Donny both know they’re in trouble.

Back in the house, the boys celebrate...and complain more about Christine. Yes, Derrick is starting the process of getting rid of Christine. We like to call that the Britney move.

Nicole and Donny are in the kitchen putting on their sad faces. He thinks that Nicole needs to go talk to Cody, but she doesn’t think it will do any good. Cody then walks in and Donny congratulates him.

Time for more filler, as we have to endure Cody’s HOH reveal.

After it’s over, Nicole then attempts to talk to Cody in the HOH. She tells him that she feels awkward and helpless. He tells her that he wants Donny out, and that he’s the one responsible for evicting her and Hayden. She doesn’t want to talk about that, though, and tells him that he has to worry about Frankie and Caleb. “You have to make a big move in this game...it would be good to keep me around so I can do work for you. You know I have nobody.” She promises not to run to Donny with any info, and Cody pretends to act like he’s contemplating doing just that.

Derrick then comes into the room to give Cody his marching orders. He informs Cody that eventually Nicole is going to come to him with an offer, but he must ignore her although Donny is this week’s target. Cody then says he’d rather have Nicole around than Christine because she is more unpredictable, plays both sides, and does nothing for them. Interesting!

After more commercials, we immediately know that filler is coming with the clown-ish music that introduces the segment. It’s Caleb, Frankie, and Victoria talking about how Derrick has changed since they came in the house, and Derrick talks about how his whole game plan is as an undercover cop. “BB Jump Street.” Seriously.

With that over, it’s time for Nicole/Hayden filler, even though he’s not in the house. She’s being interrogated by the others on how much she likes him. He would make her breakfast in the jury house, and how they kissed. What isn’t shown is how she admitted that they were forced to kiss for the cameras.

Donny is then shown walking up to the HOH, and he shrugs his shoulders as it to say it’s worth a try. Cody is sleeping, though, and Donny turns on the light to wake him up. He apologizes but says that he has to talk to him before nominations. He asks if he should expect to be nominated, and reminds him of what they talked about earlier this week. “They’re going to keep Victoria because she can’t win.” He really hopes that he won’t be nominated, and promises to help him if this happens. He continues on about how he and Nicole has done nothing wrong but comps have been thrown and “deliberately done bad things” to them. Cody admits in the diary room that Donny is making sense, so maybe he needs to consider the offer. Really, he said that, although it was clearly scripted by production.

Finally, Donny is shown outside talking to Derrick. He asks if there’s a Team America mission yet, and Derrick then asks him what he thinks about the whole game. Donny says that at first he was into it as they talked about being together. Derrick then admits that they all find him to be a target as he’s “extremely intelligent”, and that he’s torn because it is actually “in my best interest for you to stay here”. Two weeks ago, though, Donny said he was here for himself and not for Team America. Donny reminds him that he was outnumbered then, too, but Derrick claims that it’s “been eating me alive”. They both say they love Team America, and Donny says it’s “all” he has. Derrick then says that he’s also been hearing that Donny has been targeting Derrick, and also claims in the diary room that he could save Donny if he wanted. His social game, though, is making him want Donny out. Donny also admits in the diary room that he doesn’t believe anything that Derrick is selling him.

It’s that moment that everybody knows what’s going to happen. Despite what Cody claims in the diary room, we know who the nominees are going to be. Yep, it’s Donny and Nicole. Shocker! Cody gives his usual “I love you as a person” bullshit reasons, and that Donny has been talking out of line, and that’s it.

They all give the usual “I want to win veto” comments and the episode is over! What did you think? Are you a believer of Caleb’s ninja skills? Or the potential of Christine screwing over the man she plays with every day? Will Donny survive? Tell us what you think!

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 25 Recap

Tonight marks the beginning of the end for a fan favorite. But is it really the end? Will this person be resurrected within the same hour as his departure?

I’m getting ahead of myself here, though. Tonight’s episode will follow the typical Wednesday template of BOB reactions, veto comp, and veto ceremony. Oh yeah, and a lot of filler.

At least the veto competition will be interesting tonight, as it’s the beloved Zingbot. Besides that cheap ass robot’s “zings”, Kathy Griffin will be entering the house to add a bit of her own snark. This should be fun.

We begin the festivities to the reactions to Donny and Christine’s shocking Battle of the Block win. The one that Donny singlehandedly won. The one that Beastmode and cocky Caleb were complete failures, even with the assistance of that turncoat Christine. In other words, one of my highlights of the season!

Donny starts off the show shirtless, thanking Jesus to the camera. He is “tickled” to win, but he’s hurt that his suspicions about Christine were proven in the competition. “It’s an awful pain. I’ve been nothing but nice to these people, and I’m sure they were all in on it.”

In the bathroom, Christine is talking to Cody and Derrick about their failure. Cody asks if the two of them split up, and concludes he and Caleb should have done the same. She also knows that Donny now has them figured out. She adds in the diary room that she was so convinced he was going to fail that she didn’t even really hide her sabotage. “He knows that I did that on purpose.” Derrick adds more of the obvious, including the fact that this is the first time things haven’t gone his way. Caleb concludes the segment by saying that Victoria now has to go up.

We move to the kitchen, and Zach and Frankie are cleaning. Frankie says in the diary room that this is awful situation to have two of his allies up, and he now needs to win the veto…”and put up a new target”. He hints that the person may indeed be Zach.

Derrick then congratulates Donny, and says “as long as he doesn’t put me up, we’re good for the week”. He says that Victoria is the one that Frankie will probably put out, which he explains is to make Donny feel like Derrick wasn’t involved. Donny doesn’t seem impressed, and sits down in silence on the bed. “People think I’m a country bumpkin”, he says in the diary room, “but I’m very aware of what’s going on. Derrick has blown smoke up everybody’s tail this whole season. When he tells me he figured I could pull this one out, I knew he was blowing smoke.”  Derrick leaves the room, and Donny gives a little look to the camera. Oh wait, here comes Derrick back.

Derrick then throws out a bunch of his cliches in the diary room, including “if you’re not with me, you’re against me. WIth this veto coming up, he could potentially throw a monkey wrench in our plan.”

He heads into the diary room to tell Frankie what just happened, including Donny’s “mocking” look at the camera that he saw when he walked back in. They both talk a little tough, but they’re just being clowns. Frankie is most worried that Donny or Victoria win the veto, as it is “the most critical veto of the season”. Well, until next week. Derrck concludes this scene by saying that Zach is the person that should probably go up, but he’s keeping quiet for now.

On to more Donny material, as he is in the storage room having a little drink. Zach walks in to congratulate him on his victory, and Donny says that he hopes that Zach wins veto “for your sake”. Donny adds in the diary room that he knows that they pretend that Zach is in their clique, and hopes to gain his trust. He continues on to pump him up, and Zach says he’s starting to understand that his alliance may not be with him.

Zach then runs into the HOH room and hugs Frankie. He asks what would happen if Victoria won the veto and used it on Cody. If anybody else wins, Zach wants Victoria put up, and adds that Derrick probably beats anybody in the final two. Zach adds in the diary room that he understands that he’s made some mistakes and has riled people up, and Frankie’s smart move would be to go against either himself, Derrick, or Cody. “I’m just praying that he goes through with the plan to backdoor Victoria.”

After commercials, Donny makes a rare appearance in the HOH to talk about Team America. It’s so stupid. I’m sorry. They have to steal clothing, and then hold a neighborhood watch. “This will be a fun mission”, says Derrick. Um, no. There is then a montage of them stealing items before the segment ends.

Frankie then announces it’s time to draw for the veto competition. Frankie pulls Victoria, Cody gets Donny, and Derrick’s chip is for Christine. Uh oh, no Zach Attack in this competition.

In the bathroom, Caleb and Christine are bitching about Donny being chosen for the veto. “Un-beeee-lievable”, complains Christine. Caleb believes that if one of them isn’t saved, he will be the one to go home. The worst case scenario, obviously, is Victoria winning.

It’s time for more advice from Donny, as Zach is brushing his teeth in the bathroom. He tells Zach that Derrick and his pals don’t want to unload Victoria “because she’s weak in competitions. I’m hoping they don’t go for you.” He promises to try his best to win veto to make sure that Zach won’t go up.

Much of the house is now asleep when the front door suddenly opens. Yep, it’s Zingbot time! “You all look a whole lot better in person”, he (it?) says, and Donny wonders why the Zingbot is so nice this time around. “He ain’t acting right.”

“Donny, I like your beard but I wish it didn’t cover your handsome face. Props” Even Caleb is confused by this. Wait, that doesn’t take much.

The doorbell then rings, and in walks Kathy Griffin. Frankie squeals like a little school girl, and the Zingbot does a proper introduction. “I was watching the live feeds, and I got here as soon as I could. There is something seriously wrong with Zingbot. He’s only dishing out compliments. I’m here for a Zinger-vention...let me show you how it’s done.”

Caleb is first. “You and Amber have something in common. You think she’s drop dead gorgeous, and she wants you to drop dead.”

Now it’s Christine’s turn. “There’s a belief that glasses make people look smarter. Thanks for disproving that.”

Victoria - “I would zing you but I’m only supposed to zing people that are actually playing the game.”

“What do you call someone who’s not afraid to cry, wears pink, and cuddles with men? You call them Zach.” Zach acts pissed, and Kathy walks up to him. “Zing, asshole.” He says in the diary room that he’s not prepared for Kathy Griffin to tear him in shreds.

With that, the segment is over. Wait, what? Where was the zings against Derrick? Or, most importantly for those of us watching the feeds, Cody?

The actual competition happens after commercials, and Kathy is hosting. They have to “reboot” the Zingbot to his spiteful self by plugging in cables to provide electricity to a series of lightbulbs. The first to do so wins, and as Kathy adds, “let’s face it. You all kind of need it at this point.”

After the usual barrage of “we have to win” diary room segments, the game begins. And again, we have to hear a repeat of the rules, this time by Frankie. Why do they waste our time like this?

Frankie gets his first bulb lit, followed by Donny. Victoria, of course, is dead last through the whole competition. She’s a “dim bulb, literally’, says Griffin. Cody’s not doing much better. Donny pulls ahead, but Caleb begins to catch up. He’s smart, y’all. Donny then has a bit of trouble with the third bulb, so it’s between beastmode and Frankie. One of Frankie’s connectors falls off, but he goes back and fixes it before finally winning.

Yep, the true Zingbot comes back to life! “Frankie! That’s some nice tan, but I”m surprised you get any sun at all considering how much time you spend in your sister’s shadow!”

“This is the house of good looking dudes. There’s not one unattractive man in here. Oh wait, I didn’t see you there, Derrick!”

“Donny, your look is very Duck Dynasty. Too bad  your social game is more like Suck Dynasty!”

“Cody, your such a nice guy. You haven’t made any enemies this summer, except for maybe Christine’s husband!” POW!!!! Kathy gets a plug in for new comedy show, and is out the door.

After more commercials, Zach congratulates Frankie for his victory. Frankie says that some people wanted him to just let Caleb win, but he wanted Kathy Griffin to put the veto around his neck. Caleb joins them, and says he’s fine with that. Frankie asks if they’re going to keep him safe next week, and they both agree. In fact, Zach says he’ll keep him safe for two weeks.

We move on to Frankie laying in the HOH bed, and he’s talking about how it’s time for a big move. He needs to get out somebody who “has been bad for my game from the beginning.”

There’s some fluff before we get to that, though, as Cody can’t find his hat. Yep, it’s Team America time, and I have a feeling that it’s going to be a lighter, fluffier version. of what really happened. Caleb now notices that he’s missing his “fucking boots”, and Derrick  concludes there’s a “saboteur”. Zach’s gator shirt is also missing, and the house goes nuts.

Victoria is initially blamed, and Derrick decides to start the neighborhood watch. Frankie has now lost his glitter, and a house meeting is called. Derrick commences with the “BiB neighborhood watch”, and him and Derrick are excited about how easy this was to pass.

Zach starts screaming about how he needs his gator shirt, and the boys all run into the diary room. It’s still all fun and games, though, which is SOOOO not like how it actually went down.

Oh wait, maybe I’m wrong. Caleb then decides that the Saboteur has to be Zach, and Frankie plays along with it. Yep, we go back to the “Caleb is Amanda’s cousin”, and Frankie sees this as the opportunity to make it so Zach can go up.

Caleb is buying Frankie’s bullshit about how he has to be the saboteur, and the accusations begin to pile up. “You’re caught!” Zach says it’s not him. “We’ll show you Thursday you’re proven guilty.” Zach says there’s nothing he can do to prove he’s not the guy, and he’s correct.

It’s decided by Caleb to go look in the storage room garbage can, and sure enough that’s where all of the times are hidden. They all celebrate, but the damage has been done. Zach is still guilty without proof, and Frankie continues to play it up.

This is a pretty awful edit of what actually went down on Sunday night. Go back on this site and read what I wrote on that evening. It got ugly. Really ugly.,and Frankie proved to be a complete piece of garbage in the way he treated Zach. I’m not even one of those who worships at the feet of Zach, but Frankie crossed many lines that night. I’ll never respect him for this.

Here we go with what I promised at the beginning of this recap. Frankie hits all of his marks, and then calls the house in for the veto ceremony. Frankie then saves Caleb, and dressed in the worst Bieber costume ever, he goes into the worst rap ever:

“I’m going to take a page from my best friend Zach Attack,

But I’m going to do it better,

Cuz your shit was kind of wack

I love you so much and it would be fun for you to stay,

But if I don’t put you up,

I’m going to look cray cray.

So Zach my friend please go and have a seat

It’s time for you and Julie Chen to finally meet.”

Oh please. What a worm. Frankie says he expects “another Zach Attack, and most likely he’s going to throw every single one of us under the bus to each other. I know there’s going to be some fireworks coming.”

Cody babbles but I don’t hear what he says.

Frankie says he feels “betrayed” by Frankie. “I’ve been with this guy from day one, as friends; as an alliance member. I’ve had his back and this is how he treats me? It’s the worst feeling in the world.”

That’s it. The episode is over. What did you think? Are you upset with the Zach nomination? Or Frankie’s awful rap? Or how they edited down the Team America awfulness? Let us know what you think!

Does CBS Condone Abusive Behavior?

I'm no fan of Big Brother Canada, but they have had a feature each of their two seasons that livened up the slower days of the week. Various people were given top secret tasks, and if they succeeded they (or the whole house) were given a reward. 

Team America was clearly created as the US version of this concept, and it's been a failure from the beginning. The tasks have been stupid, and unlike the Canadian counterparts they have possibly compromised a house guest's game. Zach has been the Team America whipping boy, and while some of the antics have been entertaining, it really hasn't been in his best interests.

On paper, this week's Team America task could have been as harmless as the Canadian concept, but not when there is a vile creature such as Frankie in the house. To recap, Team America needed to steal an article of clothing from each of the cast and hide them. They were then to start a "Neighborhood Watch" to prevent more thefts in a 24 hour period. With the right people, this could have been fun, particularly since Team America was NOT supposed to assign the blame to anybody.

Over the last two days, the trio has been quietly grabbing items, and earlier today finished that part of the mission. The plan was to institute the second part later tonight, but unfortunately various people discovered the "thefts".

Almost immediately, the fun disappeared. A house meeting was called, and chaos erupted. Caleb was especially upset over his stolen cowboy boots, and the attention went to Victoria as the culprit. Caleb got in her face and began screaming at her. 

The blame quickly moved to Zach, egged on by Frankie. It's ugly. It's hard to watch. I turned it off multiple times. It's the worst thing I've ever seen on Big Brother. Take Aaryn's bed-tossing incident times ten. Even when he's in a room alone with Zach, Frankie eggs it on, and adds sexual overtones to the action. 

This is not a "I love Zach" post that says he's never allowed to be nominated or evicted. I have stated many times that I don't care who wins, but I don't like when production turns a blind eye to their own interference being used as justification for an eviction. The fact that Frankie continues to cross that boundary of taste could be described as sexual harassment. Imagine the uproar if it was one of the guy's pushing for oral sex from Nicole or Amber. That would not fly, but somehow Frankie is allowed to do it.

It's disgusting, and Frankie is easily the worst human being to ever be cast on the show.
